Sheaffer's Annual Birthday Bash and Auction was held Saturday .... under beautiful sunny skies! Check out the write up on his blog and also check out some of the pics. I was a bit envious of the weather.... and of course, wish I could have been there just to pet donkeys.. oh, and....to eat carrot cake!!
But... it is many miles away ...opposite end of this country actually.... so... not feasible.
They made $4,000 by day's end, and were ecstatic! What a lot of effort and hard work was done by a lot of people to pull it off .... now Sheila can continue on with her efforts to rescue abandoned and abused donkeys...oh, and whatever other creatures have found their way to her small acreage over the years. She has been heard to mutter that if a purple aardvark showed up it would have a home at her place!
Remember little Sage and Otis? This was the event for which they were made and sent. They worked hard for the cause too and managed to fetch $60 and $65 respectively. I am thrilled they did well. Thanks to all of you who sent me bids to accompany them on their trek to Ontario .... and.... I'm sorry you were all outbid .... ... but, by the same token, happy that they did so well.
Otis and Sage .....with Scruffy.... cousin of Tuffy who was in last year's auction. Next year.... I should try for three bears.... oh..hahah....and maybe a Goldilocks...
